Green Day’s new song, “The Forgotten”, will be used as a soundtrack for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2”. The track belongs to album “¡Uno!” and it is a slow-moving power ballad resembling the group’s previous singles, according to Los Angeles Times.
“¡Uno!” – the recent album that was released by Green Day – was said to be very different from the ones they have produced so far. Fans often stated that their sound suffered various changes, but the band proved the opposite with the launching of their latest ballad “The Forgotten”. The single will be used as a soundtrack for the latest “Twilight Saga” movie, “Breaking Dawn Part 2”.
After hearing the new ballad, analysts have all agreed that the song resembles some of the singles that the band produced in the past. According to them, “The Forgotten” is a slow ballad that reminds fans of “Wake Me Up When September Ends” and “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)”. Billy Joel Armstrong’s interpretation, as well as the powerful lyrics, are the key elements that will ensure the success of the song.
Green Day was supposed to host various live performances in 2012, but they cancelled them all before “The Forgotten” was released. Although they never disclosed the real reason behind their decision to cancel the show, Armstrong revealed in September that he was headed to rehab after he had an onstage meltdown during a concert at the Music Festival in Las Vegas.
The music video of “The Forgotten” was released on the same day, that is, October 30. Images from live concerts were intertwined with scenes taken from “The Twilight Saga” new movie. Producers think the new song could become just as successful as the previous singles that were used as a soundtrack, including Yiruma’s “River Flows In You”.
The new album “¡Uno!” is the first installment from the trilogy that Green Day plans to release in the following months. “¡Dos!” and “¡Tré!”, the following two albums are due to be released on November 9 and, respectively, December 11.
